National Drug and Alcohol FACT WEEK: MARIJUANA IS NEVER SAFE FOR TEENS

During the week of March 21-27, 2022 the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) promotes National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week® (NDAFW). This year, the focus is “Shatter the Myths About Drugs and Alcohol.”

MYTH: “Marijuana is safe for teens.”
MYTH “SHATTERED”: “There is NO safe amount of marijuana in the developing teen brain!”

In keeping with our mission of youth marijuana prevention, Johnny’s Ambassadors will be shining a light on what can happen in the brain of a teen who uses marijuana through a series of fun, easy-to-understand whiteboard videos for you to share. We will remind people MARIJUANA IS NEVER SAFE FOR TEENS. We will be posting these videos this entire week on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

Getting involved is easy and fun! All you have to do to participate is share our posts (or post your own) to help us “SHATTER” THE MYTH THAT MARIJUANA IS HARMLESS FOR TEENS. Each day this week please post the video below to your Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and/or LinkedIn (or all of the above):

March 21: Age Matters
March 22: Learn about THC and CBD
March 23: How Does the Brain Develop?
March 24: What areas of your brain are impacted by THC?
